Riverside Basement Apartment

Living room

Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Hay-on-Wye, Powys, Wales
A very large self contained contemporary 1 bedroom vaulted cellar apartment in our Georgian townhouse. It opens out onto our riverside terrace and gardens yet is only a 5 minute walk from most of Hay's facilities. Consisting of two stone vaulted rooms underneath the main section of the house that form one beautifully atmospheric, self-contained nest. With a wonderful double bedroom, bathroom and kitchen area, it's all you need for a private, away-from-it-all, break.

With a fantastic selection of independent shops for books, clothing, antiques and crafts together with an excellent choice of pubs, restaurants, cafes, arts venues and even a cinema Hay has something for everyone to help you unwind.

Hay also makes a great base for serious walking in the protected countryside of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Offa’s Dyke Path and T...

About the neighbourhood
Hay-on-Wye is a pretty little town swept by the river Wye on the north, with the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons to the south and west, and the lush agricultural land of Herefordshire to the east. It is famous as the town of books, and for the annual Hay Festival. But it is also an excellent base for serious walking with two national trails, the Offa’s Dyke path and the Wye Valley trail passing through the town, and the protected countryside of the Brecon Beacons National Park on it's doorstep.
Getting around
Please note that we have no off road parking at the house but will direct you on arrival to a small public car park approximately 150 metres away and free of charge.
All of Hay's facilities are within a 5/10 minute walk of the property. However in order to visit the surrounding areas a car is required or why not hire a bicycle or even and electric buggy.
